Autumnal Art Journaling Illustrated Quote: Let Life Take You Where It Needs You to Go...

Hello there. How are you doing? Are you in a part of the world that's enjoying autumn (or spring?).

Here in London, the leaves are only just beginning to turn, which is incredibly late in the year, compared to normal.

But those falling leaves and crisp mornings mean not only that it's time for warm socks and cosy jumpers...But also, the eternal lesson of the freedom of those dancing leaves...the letting go of needing to control outcomes, or where all the pieces fall. 


This was the thought that motivated the Inktense and pen watercolour  journaling you see in the picture above.

And finally, even though I thought I was always too "salesy" in these posts, as someone asked me where they can buy things only yesterday, just to be clear, you can buy this design on prints, stickers, postcards and many other yummy things, by clicking or tapping either on the design above, or on this link.

With that said, I hope you have a lovely weekend, where you happen to find yourself in the world.

More soon.

New Lighthouse Painting: "Shine..."

Hello there. Hope you've had a great week. 

This week's illustration has a touch of nostalgia for me...


A lighthouse illustration in which the lighthouse beam says, "Shine".
See this design on stickers, prints and more at Redbubble...


 When I was a teenager, we lived by the sea. And on clear nights, you could see  the lighthouse at Portland (Dorset),  a good 30 miles away, but beaming steadily through the darkness. There was always something very solid and comforting about that, even on land, and in times that were so much more certain.

All these thoughts of lighthouses got me to thinking about how it still feels important that each of still remembers to *shine*  brightly whenever  and as much we feel able.

And so the design was born. It's a hand drawn "traditional", line and wash watercolour/watercolour, but finished off digitally. So a true hybrid, really.

 Hope it sparks something for you too (and there are more details about it here, if it "floats your boat," as it were. (No puns were intended when I began that sentence, but hey, who could resist by the end? :-) )

Have a lovely weekend, in any event.

More soon.
